Title: Custom Confections - Delicious Desserts You Can Create and Enjoy Author: Jen Besel Published: 9-24-2014 Publisher: Capstone Young Readers Pages: 112 Genre: Cooking, Food & Wine Sub Genre: Arts & Photography; Children's Cookbooks ISBN: 9781623701369 ASIN: B00N105TUC Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley My Rating: 4 1/2 stars . A beautifully put together cookbook with recipes young cooks and older ones as well) will find tempting. The recipes are easy to read and follow and pictures show how lovely the finished product will look. I disagree on the claim younger cooks can make the recipes themselves on their own. That is not a problem as my great nieces and nephews and I have a great time in my kitchen when they visit. For that I consider this book perfect. My 12 year-old great-niece and ten year-old nephews made the blueberry cheesecake tarts and the mini apple cakes for a youth get-together at the church (we of course had to taste them to ensure they were done correctly.) We also made the Perfect Pie Pops for ourselves. When they went home after church that Sunday they were already talking about what we would make the next month. Although I passed my tween years, teens and young adult long ago I made the Frozen Lemonade for myself. No matter what your age Custom Confections is a great recipes to enjoy and share. Also young bakers will love the decorating aspects of these confections. My rating is 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. Decorating tips and the fact that most of these recipes use packaged or homemade cake mixes as a basis make these recipes easy and fun to make.
